Ophthalmology

Horses' eyes are extremely delicate. Any abnormality of the eye should be treated as an emergency. The treatment of ocular conditions can vary from the owner instilling medication into the eye a few times a day all the way up to hospitalization with the use of a subpalpebral lavage system (SPLs). SPLs can be used when horses are disagreeable to having their eyes worked on and when medications have to be given at high frequencies. A SPL can be used in our hospital or on the farm, but requires careful monitoring and use. 

Most common eye problems:

  • Corneal ulcers

  • Squamous cell carcinoma

  • Uveitis

  • Eyelid lacerations

  • Keratitis

Remember eye problems are always an emergency! Call us immediately if you notice something is wrong with your horses’ eyes (336) 998-7131 or (336) 998-7130 after hours.
